We do not have a TV and have placed a blank over the socket but watch Sky on a 20 inch laptop through the internet using a slingbox.

We receive a form each year to sign to state that we do not have a TV.

Driving in France

Can anyone advise on what is the most up to date position about carrying two breathalysers in the car in France. Did it ever become law for residents/tourists? is it enforced? if so what is the penalty for not having them? To be on the safe side we always carry two.

Good restaurant in St. Cyprien

Great to find this restaurant open when we visited in January and again in February.

Situated just slightly away from the main port around past the Joa casino and next to the Agency du Port.

Very friendly, good food and reasonably priced.
